Story of Service

 

Sherwood H. Brantley (1897-1970) was one of many children born and raised on their father’s farm in Nash County, North Carolina. Even after the war, in the 1930s and 40s, Sherwood Brantley continued to work a modest life as a farmer.

Brantley entered military service on July 24, 1917 and served in the Headquarters Company of the 1st Artillery (later called the 113th Field Artillery) of the North Carolina National Guard.

Brantley, along with two other Nash County residents (Warner C. Journigan and Itimous T. Valentine), served in the trenches of France from May 26, 1918 until they left St. Nazaire, France aboard the troop transport ship Santa Teresa on March 6, 1919.
